I found the resolution on this site. I removed the face of the unit and hit the reset button on the right side of the unit. I put the faceplate back on. I connected the unit to my laptop via USB port. I downloaded the software for the c5550 from the Garmin site. I installed the base software and the upgrades. I left it connected to the laptop for a few hours to fully charge. I then disconnected it from the laptop and hit the red button to turn the unit on. I received a software update message, when that was done, the unit completely booted up.
